# What is the difference between \begin{frame}{Some title} and \begin{frame}\frametitle{Some title}?

The question title pretty much says it all.

How is this

\begin{frame}{Some title}
[contents]
\end{frame}


different from

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Some title}
[contents]
\end{frame}


in beamer?

My question is intentionally as general as it seems. I would like to understand whether one should prefer one form to the other and, if that's the case, why / with what objectives in mind? Or is it really only a matter of personal preferences?

• With \frametitle you have a bit more possibilities, as you can for example use \frametitle<1-3>{bla}. – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Oct 26 '17 at 14:41

As samcarter mentioned in the comments, \frametitle offers you more options.
